We are a charitable catering company, serving 1.7m nutritious hot meals in 46 schools across Southampton each year.
We partner with: nurseries and infant schools; junior and primary schools; SEN schools; PRUs and secondary schools – all within Southampton.
For each, our menu is devised with the specific needs of the school and its pupils in mind, from the number of meal choices available day-to-day, to the theme days and special events we plan in. Our meals also comply with the nutritional requirements of the Government’s School Food Plan.
Each school is a valued member of our charity, represented fully on our organisation’s Board of Trustees. Our aim is to ensure that each pupil in our 47 partner schools gets a delicious, nutritionally balanced hot meal at lunchtime, to help them focus on their studies throughout the afternoon, on every school day.
We are proud to be Food For Life accredited for our school meals service – it means we’re committed to designing menus that make the best use of local, seasonal ingredients, that are also free from controversial additives, with 75% of our meals being freshly prepared from scratch on site or in a local kitchen.
